Reese Witherspoon may be best known as an enduring force in Hollywood, but the actress is certainly no stranger to the interiors industry.
After her sucsess in some of the biggest films and shows of the last two decades – including Legally Blonde and Big Little Lies – the Louisianan is turning her hand to design, where she has already gained recognition after starring in Netflix's Home Edit series.
With such a flair for interiors, it is unsurprising that Reese's home acts as a source of inspiration around the calendar – and her Christmas decor is no exception. Yet Reese's normally classic, often blue and white, choices have been swapped out this year, for bolder choices.
So, if you're looking to decorate a Christmas tree that's a little out of lane, Reese has you covered – whether you opt for metallic minimalism or rainbow maximalism. Yes, she's explored both styles this year – and you can take inspiration from each of them, below.
Reese Witherspoon's silver Christmas tree

We thought Reese's Christmas tree ideas would be elegant, pared back and New England style, but the most minimalist is silver, with silver, red and gold decorations.
While her silver tree breaks conventions, it does complement her neutral scheme seamlessly, and has already gained over 148K likes and celebrity admiration, including from singer Mariah Carey and Experience Trainer Jeanette Jenkins. It wins approval in the interior design world, too.
Dani Taylor, Product & Creative Director at Cox & Cox, explains that a silver tree offers the 'best of both worlds' – offering a 'totally new look with an alternative Christmas tree' but without sacrificing the traditional tree shape you know and love. 'The silver tree really glows when you add string lights, and the neutral color works with virtually any trend,' she says.

In a contrast to her silver tree, Reese Witherspoon's rainbow alternative is a celebration of maximalist Christmas decor ideas – and crowned with a star.
This second tree taps into festive traditions, with colorful ornaments that complement the bookshelves behind, which are stacked with books and accessories in similar hues – coordinating your tree being one of the key tips from interior designers for decorating tastefully for Christmas.
This more colorful Christmas counterpart has similarly acquired thousands of likes since the actress shared it with the world, with notable admirers including celebrity fitness trainer Drea Wheeler.
